Part Time Middle School Latin Teacher

Faculty / Part-Time

Moses Brown School, Providence, RI

Founded in 1784, Moses Brown School has been a leader in education for over 240 years. We have a
proven tradition of academic excellence, a commitment to great teaching, and a dedication to fostering
character and confidence in young people. Our stunning 33-acre campus—formerly the farm of
18th-century Quaker abolitionist leader Moses Brown—provides expansive academic, artistic, and
athletic facilities right in the heart of Providence.

We are a Quaker school, one of the oldest and largest of a network of 80 Friends schools in the U.S.
While each is independent, we all share the same essential mission: to nurture and celebrate each child’s
special gifts, talents, and identities—what Quakers refer to as their Inner Light. Rooted in the Quaker
values of simplicity and integrity, community and equality, care and peace, we apply these values every
day to create an academic culture of deep reflection, expansive curiosity, and spirited inquiry.

At Moses Brown School, 100 faculty members serve nearly 800 students ages 3-18, with a
student-to-teacher ratio of 8:1. Our lower and middle school programs offer a rigorous and balanced
approach to academics, social-emotional learning, and student skills in a well-coordinated structure that
promotes and enhances the learning process through close personal contact between students and
teachers.

The student experience is incredibly varied, including 17 musical and performance groups across the
school, 50 clubs and activities, and 63 athletic teams competing in 17 different sports. And while
individual achievement is celebrated, learning at Moses Brown is a shared enterprise. We foster a close
sense of community, evident in collaborative relationships between students and teachers and in our
weekly meeting for worship.

Our diverse community is strong enough to hold hundreds of brilliant, unique, independent-minded
people. With $7 million awarded annually in need-based financial aid, Moses Brown partners with many
families to make a shared investment in bright, caring, and thoughtful children from all socioeconomic
backgrounds. And with 28% of our student body being people of color, our community reflects the
demographics of our drawing area. Ours is an education that is time-tested, fully immersive, and ever
more relevant to today’s world. To learn more about Moses Brown School, please visit
